Aug 19, Paul Barnes rated it really liked it Shelves: Probably the most complete book on futures trading I’ve read. Obviously focused on trend following, building up a simple mechanical trend following approach, which, applied to a diversified portfolio, accounts for the performance of the most lionised of traders. But complete in the sense of also addressing position sizing, psychological aspects and much of the practical minutiae.

Practical Good insights into the world of trend following funds. Although the algorithms are basic, they show what is possible for this approach. Dec 17, Ha Truong rated it really liked it Shelves: Very good book about trend following.
Jun 28, Tadas Talaikis rated it did not like it. Curve fitted, to realize past performance is unreal due to diminishing returns.
No out of sample testing and other important parameters. I wouldn’t even try to argue that moving average strategies are dumb, and if so much funds use them it only shows what idiotic place we’re in where idiots “manage” money and pretend to be kings of the world.
At least it’s changing with diminishing returns. For comparison, here’s my own futures strategy for last two years.
